iBird is the app everyone has seen in Apple’s TV commercial “We have an app for that” (see ibird.com/itchy) and has become the world’s best-selling birding app. It comes with a powerful decision engine for identifying any bird species of North America just like an expert. iBird replaces all your heavy field guides with a portable database that doesn’t need a connection to the internet like some birding apps.
▶ BUYER’S GUIDE TO BIRDING APPS – Before you buy any bird app compare their features at: ibird.com/compare.
▶ INCLUDES 938 SPECIES FROM NORTH AMERICA AND HAWAII – no other app comes close to this number of species.
▶ SYNCS – Automatically syncs Favorites and Notes to iCloud.
▶ 17 SEARCH ATTRIBUTES – search by color, shape, song, location, head and body patterns, flight style and much more. Includes a new way to search by color, tutorials on how to use the search and definitions of every attribute.
▶ AUDIO SONGS AND CALLS – iBird Pro offers 5 hours of bird songs and calls from the gold standard of recordings; the Macaulay Library at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. We have 154 more species song tracks than any other bird app!
▶ UNIQUE SPECTROGRAPHIC DISPLAY brings insight to the structure of bird songs by allowing you to view the sound's frequency components.
▶ SAVE & LOAD SEARCH - Now you can save, load, name and edit your favorite search attributes and use them over and over.
▶ PHOTO CENTER - Photo Center is a gallery for storing and assigning your photos to specific species pages in iBird. It also allows you to share photos via Facebook and Twitter, or email them to friends.
